Any fans of Nick Cave are definitely going to want to turn their attention to Myla Valentina’s striking beyond all definition Alt Pop Ballad “Colour in the Grey”. With a similar lyrical style and poised, unfalteringly expressive vocal delivery, you’ll be arrested by Colour in the Grey from the very first verse.
Colour in the Grey is an indulgently captivating feat of soulful bluesy Pop, in which you’ll also find reminiscences to the likes of Angel Olsen thanks to Myla Valentina’s vulnerably melancholic vocals. The cinematic soundscape will also allow you to soak up the same ethereal resonance as offered by tracks from artists such as Chris Cornell and Pearl Jam.
Between all of the comparisons, the London-based artist definitely hasn’t failed in stamping down her own signature style onto the airwaves. She’s already set her sound apart with palpable distinction, it will be incredibly exciting to see how Myla Valentina follows on from the debut of her first original single.
